The Flame Haired Solstice Dreamer

Cold winter brings the Everfrost and jewels every tree
In a forest new as birth and old as old can be
A flame~haired dreamer wanders there and shelters from the wind
And spins her dreams around the trees to break the ties that bind
She takes her thread and spins anew and how the Greenwood smiles
As she spins a spell for freedom and for her spirit Wylde

The dreamer finds an ancient oak and shelters in his lee
In a forest new as birth and old as old can be
Tis summer now and birdsong weaves its magick through her spells
And humming bees drum drowsily in the foxglove's bells
The dreamer sits beneath the oak with yarn upon her knee
And spins and knits and weaves her dreams and sets her spirit free

"When birds fall from the sky and the animals are dying, a new tribe of people...shall come unto the earth from many colors, classes, creeds, who by their actions and deeds shall make the earth green again. they will be known as the warriors of the Rainbow"

~the grumps~

self portrait wearing my green man t shirt~too cold to take off my jacket!

this was taken last week when i was in a considerably better humor~this week i am in a rather evil mood and sad to say taking it out on the world in general.

i am finding it difficult to feel calm and collected and centred~i think things snowballed~the breakdown in 'pretty pagan' and the subsequent bill meaning we had to cut short our short break next week and day out in glastonbury, my hospital visit and the uncomfortable pains that followed, feeling really tired...well actually feeling completely exhausted...

its all left me a very unhappy bunny to say the least~ho hum

maybe i need a tonic, i think its time to get my herbal books out and see what i can conjure up~or maybe it will be something as simple as a very early night with my book and a mug of hot milk...

Hi :)
Hope you start feeling better soon... sounds like a bit of a rough time.

Clicked on your link for the green man t-shirt (which I now really want one of heehee!) and now I think I'm going to have to read the Stonewyld books... I'm sure I remember seeing something of them last year when I visited Glastonbury but it some how slipped through the net - looks like just my kind of thing so thanks!

you had a general anaesthetic which can take quite some to get out of your physical body.. it also affects your auric field as well.. so take it very easy.. milk thistle is good, so is dandelion root tea..
sending love xoxo R
